It's official: the ballots are in, the arguments over, the tears have dried. We have a winner. The Bois-Malot blanc is officially the best $10 white in the store. This is a wine that is simply delicious. It is aromatic with mellow tones of white flowers, green apples and vervy acidity. It has style, complexity, and a sense of place. It is totally bonkers that this is a $10 wine. If you're unexpectedly coming over for dinner, this is what I'm serving--and you're going to be delighted.

I was doubly blown away by this white from Bordeaux, first by the overall quality and then again by its low price. It is rife with fresh lemon, lime blossom, green apple and melon flavors with very distinct minerality on the palate. The richness of the vintage is evident with its ripe phenolic texture and rich fruit, that, when combined with the balancing acidity, lasts for nearly a minute on the finish. If you are looking for a seriously high quality summer white at a steal, this is your winner.

A rich and round Bordeaux white with tropical notes of lychees, ripe peaches, Valencia oranges, framed by a nice acidity that gives it balance and légèreté. This bottle would be fantastic as an event white drinker and on a sophisticated dinner table.

Rich rich rich! Sauvignon Blanc with Semillon and the "secret weapon" (Sauvignon Gris) for texture and body. Floral aromas and the amazing mouth feel make this white stand out.

Syrupy lychee notes at first but vibrant with surprisingly sharp acidity, Bois-Malot Blanc is a delicious blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, and Semillon. The warmer 2015 vintage makes this release ripe with citrus fruit but there’s enough pith to save it from being too cloying. There’s a pleasing viscous texture as well, providing surprising weight to this value-priced white. I’ve long been a fan of Bois-Malot’s high quality red Bordeaux, and this is a welcome summery addition to their lineup.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Semillon

- A rich, viscous, full-flavored but subtly-scented and botrytis-prone white grape, Sémillon reaches magical heights when infected with "noble rot" and combined with even small amounts of the aromatic and high-acid Sauvignon Blanc to make Sauternes, one of the world's most revered and longest-lived wines, and in the sweet wines of surrounding regions like Barsac. Sémillon's most famous incarnation is in the wines of Château d'Yquem, one of the world's most expensive wines, and one that has been known to evolve for centuries. It frequently dominates, but not by much, in the oak-aged whites of Bordeaux's Graves and Pessac-Léognan, creating honeyed and viscous wines that are unlike any others. Elsewhere in Bordeaux and around France it takes on a supporting role in the wines of Entre-Deux-Mers and the Médoc. While planted throughout France, Europe, California and Washington, Sémillon's role as underling usually keeps it out of the spotlight with a few winery-specific exceptions. However, the grape is allowed to shine in Australia's Hunter Valley, where it is used to make an elegant dry wine often called, perplexingly, Hunter Valley Riesling. It also makes some incredible dry, oaked wines from the Barossa and lovely stickies in the style of Sauternes.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
